From: KEEP OUR NHS PUBLIC - NORTH EAST
The so-called draft NHS "Sustainability and Transformation Plans" are a financially-driven attack on health services, imposed by NHS England. This continued underfunding of vital services is already leading to cuts and closures across the region, with more to come .... and cover-ups - KONP has asked for precise and detailed financial projections, but this has been denied.
Join the march and rally on Saturday 4t February 2017:
Assemble 11.45 am at Framlington Place, Newcastle (by Newcastle University Medical School)
March leaves at 12.15 pm
Rally at 1 pm at Grey's Monument, Newcastle City Centre, with speakers including MPs, political groups, medical and nursing staff, and representatives from local NHS campaign groups and health unions.
Finish at 2pm.

The date of Saturday 4 February 2017 has been specifically chosen so that this North East event will then build for the National NHS Demonstration which will take place in London exactly one month later on Saturday 4th March 2017.
The Communist Party's Northern District Committee is fully supportive of this event and urges a mass turn-out.
